Condition

Some customers may comment that the ZR1’s exposed carbon fiber hood parts appear to have a yellow tint appearance when compared to other carbon fiber parts.

Cause

The cause of the condition may be that the carbon fiber hood and engine cover use a different impregnated carbon fiber resin, which is more heat resistant. The different resin may cause a color shift; and the lighting source and direction of view will sometimes highlight this color shift.

Correction

There is no problem with the paint application on these carbon fiber parts, and NO repair attempts should be made to change the color of the parts.
